The Air Force Rapid Sustainment Office's (RSO) inaugural Advanced Manufacturing Olympics — AMO for short — will be held virtually this October. AMO will bring together a wide spectrum of participants from military, businesses, and academia to share insights on advanced manufacturing including 3D printing, artificial intelligence, automation and robotics, and more.

Next week, the RSO will be hosting an Ask Me Anything to share exclusive information, and open the floor to any questions regarding the virtual event. If you're looking forward to learning more about the mission and purpose behind AMO, join Dr. Will Roper, Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics on Thursday 6/25 at 12:30 pm EST.
